In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1983 Mercedes 300D Diesel. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Mercedes W123 300TD Turbo Diesel Wagon Restoration Part 2: Engine Startup
In Part 2 Kent will attempt to start the engine by just charging the battery and not doing anything else. This will be a good test of the internal health of the engine. You will be amazed at the results. Kent then goes inside the shop to discuss some of the challenges associated with "waking up an old diesel engine" that has sat idle for a long time. Once started the next challenge will be to determine just how healthy the engine is. Part 1: http://youtu.be/BSTtMl9HCDc Part 2: http://youtu.be/Pe_3nbCARLA Part 3: http://youtu.be/hvRlRj06A0s
